DESCRIPTION

Convergences: Selected Photographs from the Permanent Collection, will be on view at the Getty Center in Brentwood from July 8 to October 19, 2014. With its title is inspired by Lawrence Weschler's 2006 collection of essays Everything that Rises: A Book of Convergences, the exhibition will juxtapose contemporary and historical photographs from the permanent collection to reveal points of intersection between works that have been created in response to persistent historical, technical, or aesthetic concerns. Whether related by direct influence or visual affinities of a more tenuous nature, groupings or pairs of images underscore the rich diversity of photographic approaches to subjects that have engaged photographers for the past century. Recent acquisitions by Kota Ezawa, Barry Frydlender, Sandra Kantanen, Vera Lutter, Mary Ellen Mark, Scott McFarland, Yasumasa Morimura, Tomoko Sawada, Cindy Sherman, Alec Soth, James Welling, Xing Danwen, and Pinar Yolacan, will serve to anchor clusters of photographs. Kota Ezawa's Central Park Zoo (1967) will be installed with Garry Winogrand's Central Park Zoo, New York City, the photograph on which it is based.
